Cherish is a word I'm learning to appreciate. This past weekend at my scrap retreat, I mulled the meaning of this word around in my head. Cherish seemed to be a fitting title for this layout featuring my daughter and her Grandpa John. No journaling on this one, the title says it all. After losing my mother 3 years ago, I'm much more aware of how much I cherish my family and friends. My children are so lucky to have 3 Grandpa's and a Grandma left to love and spoil them.

I was in a very sentimental, shabby chic kind of mood when I created this layout...

and I couldn't wait to break out this Basic Grey Kissing Booth paper!

Love these gorgeous flowers from Petaloo but I only had two left :(  Rummaged around in my ribbon until it struck me that I could make my own. Can you guess which one is mine? (answer at bottom of post)

There are bits from so many companies on here! You should have seen my table when I was finished :)

My love affair with Thickers will never end :)

That little green flower is a hitchhiker! I just noticed him as I was typing this.

So beautiful Beth!! I love the BG on this and the shabby chic look you created!! The photo is really great and I love that you let the title speak for itself, without adding any journaling.
